I'm sorry, but Ron Oester not getting the manager's job is Ron Oester's fault.
I don't care what kind of money they offer you. You get the chance to manage...and you jump on it! He was the idiot in that scenario IMO.
And I don't blame the Reds for one second for passing up on Colon last year, knowing his pending free agent status. And I don't care what little the Expo's had to give up to get him either.
What were the Indian's demands (player-wise) from this organization for Colon? It was far greater than what they settled for from the Expos at the time.
And I don't think Colon would have made much of a difference anyway, due to the injuries to key offensive players we incurred anyway.
We're arguing over a moot issue here LOL
